True Beauty Radiates From Within!

Everyone is beautiful in their own way, and how we see others reflects exactly how we see ourselves.

You can ask me about what those around me were wearing on a given day (including myself), and I won’t be able to recall. For many years, I wondered what was wrong with me that kept me from remembering details that seemed to come so easy to others. I’ve always been an empath, but didn’t realize to what extent that dominated my outlook until recently. Now, I recognize that this quality has always allowed me to see people’s souls rather than their appearance. It also allows me to recognize those who’s complete energy is dedicated to basing their judgments of self and others solely on the exterior, and every time I recognize that, my heart hurts for those individuals.

We are all so much more than the looks of our “petals”. We are strong, courageous, determined, and resilient stalks, long before our petals emerge. Today, I feel compelled to urge those of you who struggle with insecurity and feelings of inferiority based on achievements, looks, and belongings (because that is where your energy is focused) to spend a little time nourishing your soul, and looking for the beauty in those around you. You will be amazed at how forgiving you can become, and how your outlook changes when you stop focusing on the “stuff” that disappears when we leave this earth.

In this life, I truly believe that for the most part:

  • People are good
  • We are all doing the best we can with what we have to do it
  • Acceptance is the key to relationships
  • A little forgiveness can heal our most complex issues
  • Trying and failing is better than giving up…always
  • God wants us to all to experience connection, unconditional love, deep joy, and peace of mind.

No amount of focus on our exterior will ever replace the beauty that radiates when our souls are properly nourished. Do one thing for yourself today to increase the beauty and kindness you radiate to those around you. Those efforts will multiply infinitely, and last many years after your life on earth is over.

Blessings to all, and wishes for a life that’s peaceful ahead.

Sharing Helps us to Fully Bloom

I am an over-sharer. I share at the risk of being judged, and sometimes wonder if I’ve shared too much. But, I continue to do so with the hope that in sharing my truth in this life, I am helping others to embrace every aspect of themselves. Connections are not developed at the deepest level without sharing, and I feel a deep connection to and empathy for all of humanity.

It occurred to me this morning that depression and anxiety (and all mental illnesses) are allowed to grow when we don’t talk about them. Not only that, but there is an inverse relationship; the less we talk about it, the more they prevail. I want you to know that I’ve dealt with these issues in various times of my life, and if you are struggling right now, I see you, I get you, I feel you. If you ever need an ear to listen, please don’t hesitate to message me here.

Our strength lies in sharing, and when we open up about the realities of our struggles, only then can we begin to truly bloom.

A Little Bit of Sunshine Goes a Long Way

We often get so busy with schedules and daily tasks that we forget to pause and take in the beauty of God’s precious creation. The soul nourishment provided by the sunshine, a breeze, or the twinkling stars exceeds any caffeinated beverage or energy drink available. Starting today, I vow to spend a few minutes each morning and every evening taking in the glorious energy available to us every day.

I am certain that it will provide the sense of calm and balance necessary to accomplish the tasks of daily life. Will you join me?

🎼Every Heart Filled With a Song🎶

Alive and ready for another day.

News filled with gloom, we’ve lost our way.

When they sky seems forever a shade of gray,

The only solution left…to pray.

For clarity and peace to rise,

For the Son’s bright hope to shine in our eyes.

For the past to stay where it belongs,

And every heart to be filled with a song.

Some days are harder, this is true.

But God is there, He believes in you.

He loves your soul, even when it’s blue.

Always starting each day anew.

For clarity and peace arise,

When the Son’s bright hope shines in our eyes.

The past shall stay where it belongs,

And every heart will be filled with a song.

Pick up your armor, no time for fright.

We can’t grow weary, the goal’s in sight.

Our bodies may signal fight or flight,

But our spirit will carry us in the way that’s right.

For clarity and peace will rise,

The Son’s bright hope will shine in our eyes.

The past behind us where it belongs,

And every heart is filled with a song.

Leave behind the heartache of this sad place.

Remember that God recognizes our face.

It’s not our speed that counts in the race,

But the daily blessings we embrace.

For clarity and peace will rise,

When we have the Son’s bright hope in our eyes.

The past left behind where it belongs,

And every heart shall be filled with a song.

✅Your Opinion of Me Will Not Change My Life’s Mission👌🏼

Don’t get me? Ok…

Just go on your way.

I’m passionate & true,

May not make sense to you.

I speak from the heart,

That’s not the best part.

I give credit undue

To those struggling through.

I know you don’t see

How you could ever be

In a place where you’d beg,

Or be on your last leg.

Wishing someone cared,

And your pain could be shared.

But this life gives us chances,

Lonely solo dances,

When having one on our side

Could ease bumps on the ride.

I’ll continue to give,

And help others live

The best life they envision…

That is my life’s mission.

Continuing to find those

Who want wounds to close,

Pain they’re willing to bear,

As humanity’s shared.

The fake and pretentious facades of this world,

No longer matter, true beauty unfurled.

To love other people, just as they are…

Knowing that with a village, we can all go so far.

Life’s greatest blessing, don’t blink or it’s gone.

Is a chance on this journey to feel less alone.

So, I get it, I may not be your cup of tea.

But when you need an ear, I hope you find someone like me.
